TWD: Wish to Back Up Saved Games

posted by Dead Kev on - last edited - Viewed by 231 users

I'm re-formatting my HD and wish to keep my hard work in the Walking Dead up through episode 4. Which files do I need to back up to ensure this happens? I have the non-Steam PC version of the game.

  • Back up the folder:

    "Your username"\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\

  • Thank you. I was looking in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead. I didn't realize it put another folder in My Documents.

    Is there any logic as to why TellTale separated these saves from the main game files? I'm sure there is, but I'm just curious.

    I can't give an official answer, but there are several reasons why a developer would do that.
    1. Each Windows user can have its own savegames
    2. Users can't write to %programfiles% without elevated privileges

    Makes sense. Thanks for the insight!
